    The entire 120 staff of a Los Angeles primary school have been removed after two teachers were jailed for allegedly sexually abusing dozens of children.

    Two teachers have been arrested and are being investigated over 23 alleged cases of sexual abuse.

    The staff, from the principal to cafeteria workers, will be replaced in a move that police officers say is necessary for them to conduct a complete investigation.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports from Los Angeles.
